ATLANTIC CITY (May 31, 2019) – Chart-topping, Grammy-nominated comedian and feature film actor Ron White will be hitting the Ovation Hall stage at Ocean Casino Resort at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 23. The show is for mature audiences only. Ticket prices range from $45 to $75 and are available via Ticketmaster.
Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White, known as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the “Blue Collar Comedy” phenomenon, has established himself as a star in his own right. White has always been a classic storyteller. His stories relay tales from his real life, ranging from growing up in a small town in Texas to sharing stories of his daily life to becoming one of the most successful comedians in America. All 4 of his comedy albums charted #1 on the BillboardTM Comedy Charts. He has sold over 14 million albums, been nominated for two Grammys, and since 2004 has been one of the top three grossing stand-up comedians on tour in America.
White began performing comedy in 1986 and was quickly opening for legendary comedians Sam Kinison and Jeff Foxworthy. After eventually becoming a comedy club headliner, White alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Craig Hawksley took their Blue Collar Comedy Tour countrywide. The show toured for over three years to sold-out audiences in over 270 cities and grossed more than $35 million. In 2003, Warner Brothers filmed the show, “Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie” for a theatrical/TV/DVD/CD release. The film premiered as the most-watched movie in Comedy Central’s history. In 2005, the video “Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again” was filmed and released on TV and DVD/CD.
As an actor, Ron White had supporting roles in the major theatrical films “Horrible Bosses” and “Sex and the City 2.” He also had a principal role in “Jayne Mansfield’s Car” (written/directed by Billy Bob Thornton), and is a co-executive producer of “Bridegroom,” a Linda Bloodworth–Thomason documentary, which debuted at the 2013 NYC Tribeca Film Festival and won the Audience Award.
In 2016, White’s acting talents were showcased alongside Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino and Imogen Poots, in music-industry veteran Cameron Crowe’s Showtime series, ”Roadies.”
The show is for mature audiences only. Ticket prices range from $45 to $75 and are available via Ticketmaster.
